awesome or o.k.

Inspired by Matthew Leung,
Błażej Krukowski, and
Pat Blouin

having selected body parts to wear
i wake up to an existential pain
towards my day descending down the stairs
i wish  give me three hearts  six legs  no brain

my carnal sacrifice demands relief
unheard  unseen by stern celestial powers
i teach  a little girl gives me a flower
i learn  a big girl gives me grief

between transmissions head to toe
the surface tension shows a subtle twist
love's ancient character's last sign  last stroke
that says to me surrender or resist

wishing to scale these twelve score shades of gray
i reconcile awesome with o.k.
